This is one of the legendary Battle Markers -- a rare and valuable token awarded at random to adventurers, usually in recognition for valour in combat.
How, why, and when Battle Markers are awarded is something that continues to puzzle even the most learned of sages.
Battle Markers are used as a form of currency for certain special game events.
Currently, Battle Markers can be received at the following places:
- When getting your Experience reward for Multiplayer Battles
- At the end of Axepath Cemetery, together with your final experience reward
- At the end of The Ruins of Yir-Tanon, together with your final experience reward
- At the end of The Ruined City of Tarn, along with your final experience reward (and a Blue Stone Orb, if you're lucky). If you get a BM but quit without saving your game and try again in the hopes of getting a Blue Stone Orb you'll lose any BMs you get from that particular Tarn visit
- At the Westgard Library in Talinus, in exchange for Aldvarian Artifacts, including the Aldvarian Amulet.
- Every time you defeat a Bonejaw Fighter or a Bonejaw Defender in Shadowglen you may find 1 battle Marker
- For completing the Hidden Lair in the Hall of Ruin you receive 50 Battle Markers
These strange items first started appearing in adventurer's inventories on the 1st of March 2010.
Initially, they were only received when getting your Experience reward for multiplayers, but that was later changed.
Battle Markers are completely random, but Multiplayer Battles seem to give more BMs than single-player replayable scenarios - up to 12 BMs from a single multiplayer fight have been observed, while the max observed from the single player ones is 5 for Tarn and 3 for the rest.
Battle Markers are used as a form of currency for certain special game events. So far there have been several Battle Marker Raffles.
If you want, when buying Varkyn's Ring Of Motley Wonder you can pay part of the price in Battle Markers: 25, 50, 100 or 200 depending on which payment option you will choose (see item page for details).
